Trans Anguilla Airways (TAA) is an air charter airline operating to and from Clayton J. Lloyd International Airport to points in the Caribbean.

History

The Trans Anguilla Airways company was created in 1997.[1] The company was founded by Joshua Gumbs of Rey Hill, and operated by his brother Lincoln Gumbs (manager) and Carl Thomas (chief pilot).[2][3]

From December 2010 to December 2011, Trans Anguilla Airways was exceptionally authorized to land and take off from the Virgin Gorda Airport, despite the fact that its fleet was not compliant with the airport's standards.[4]

In July 2013, Trans Anguilla Airways launched a new service flight to Sint Eustatius.

Destinations

TAA operates scheduled 7-minute flights between Anguilla and Sint Maarten. It offers private charters, shared charters, executive/corporate charters, sightseeing charters, inter-island charters, freight services, and air ambulance services connecting Anguilla to other islands in the Leeward Islands. TAA also offers sightseeing flights to neighbouring islands.
